A healthy society cannot privilege religious belief

British Universities have a public duty to immediately terminate the studies of any medical students refusing to attend lectures or answer exam questions on alcohol-related or sexually transmitted diseases. If a medic is not competent to deal with such diseases then there can be no question of that person ever becoming a doctor; it follows therefore that there is no point in training doctors with such critical gaps in their knowledge.

A healthy society cannot privilege religious belief. We do not allow vegetarian medics to turn their backs on mad-cow disease, or non-smokers on emphysema. This is an Islamist campaign to push boundaries, to undermine civil society and the universal right to health care and to discriminate on the basis of religion. It must be met with zero tolerance.

The General Medical Council and the British Medical Association should make clear that those who put their own personal beliefs before the health of patients and the public have no place in the medical profession.

Support Early Day Motion in favour of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain!

6 MPs have called on UK MPs to support the following Early Day Motion in
favour of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain. You can help getting more
MPs on board by doing the following:

  1. Write to your MP, identifying and quoting the motion and ideally offering
    arguments in favour of it. If you don’t know who your MP is or how to
    contact them, visit http://www.parliament.uk /people.
  2. If your MP has already signed, congratulate them.
  3. Government ministers don’t sign EDMs. If your MP is a minister, ask them
    what the Government are doing about the matter. You may be more likely to
    elicit a response by asking more specific questions.
  4. If your MP hasn’t signed and isn’t a minister, urge them to sign.
  5. Encourage others to follow the same steps.

UK members please consider supporting the following House of Commons
Early Day Motion:
